This member of the Burseraceae
family was given this name by Townshend Stith Brandegee in 1891. It
is found on Baja California, Mexico, growing in a well drained soil
with some water and lots of sun. The stems only grow to fifteen
centimetres - a bit slim for a true caudiciform - and the bush will
eventually reach three and a half meters height. The small flowers
are greenish yellow or crème coloured.
Named after: Joachim Burser, German/Danish botanist
